Many dream of living a life like famous musicians. They think of performing every night in front of happy crowds, traveling to far away cities, and getting to do what they love. While that does sound amazing for the musically-inclined, Bob Seger‘s song “Turn the Page” gets honest about the hardships of living on the road.

“Turn the Page” is about touring and the darker side of fame. Seger describes the loneliness and pain of traveling so much on tour. This song was actually only one of two songs that Seger wrote while touring during his long career.
